Forum Thread: New 7D user

just a quick question.  i recently purchased a Canon 7D with a Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS lens.  for the most part, it's an awesome camera, however, when i use the zoom lens to take pics at my sons basketball game they come out grainy. i've tried playing around with the settings  but i just cant seem to get a really crisp shot.  could it be that the f/4 is not good enough and i would need to upgrade to a f/2.8?  any help would be great.

Ensure ISO isn't too high, check photo quality is set to Standard/Neutral. I have a Sigma 30mm Prime F1.4 which is a super quick lens and very sharp at 2.0-2.8 so maybe worth a punt! For walkround lens you are better with a 18-135 or equivalent
